Nobel / Pulitzer

Both the Nobel

and the Pulitzer Prize committees investigating sexual* abuse charges.  Is this because:

  • literature is full of creeps
  • arts and letters communities are especially sensitive / responsive to charges like this
  • unusually weird status imbalances and games in these communities
  • lots of occasions for sin: alcohol, parties, conferences, etc
  • culture of bad behavior semi-tolerated in the arts
  • people with power will always take things too far
  • all, none, other?

* kind of unfair for Katarina Frostenson to be blamed for her husband’s crimes imo, but I don’t know the deets.  the betting tips is another matter.  almost funny.
